Ok, Finn, what we need from you is your preferred unix username and the email address you would like to have <uid>@apache.org forwarded to.
I have always done my open-source work under the 'bckfnn' handle. If possible, I would like to pick that as my unixname. Otherwise 'fb' or 'fbock' will work too.
The forwarding should be done to [EMAIL PROTECTED]
At least as important is to immedidately sign the Contributors License agreement (CLA) and send (or fax) it to the Apache Software Foundation as fast as possible. I'd send it in paper, even if it takes longer there's a higher chance of immediate success. You only get the account if the CLA has been received. Find the CLA here: http://www.apache.org/licenses#clas
I've send that yesterday, 30-dec, by snail mail.
As a new committer there are a few things to learn: http://incubator.apache.org/learn/newcommitters.html http://incubator.apache.org/learn/
Feel free to ask for help with setting up SSH or whatever when you get your login.
Thanks. Hopefully I'll manage with the very fine guides.
